Trending 2017 is the latest edition of Foresight Factory’s annual report looking ahead to the next 12 months, examining consumer trends and behaviour. Now in its twentieth year, Foresight Factory (formerly Future Foundation) is the world’s leading independent trends agency, partnering with their clients to help them Own the Future through understanding and commercially exploiting consumer trends.
